Do Not Swim notice lifted at Ballyloughane Beach

Galway Daily news Swimming ban at Ballyloughane Beach due to E. Coli

The temporary swimming ban imposed at Ballyloughane beach earlier this week has been lifted after further water quality testing.

Galway City Council issued a notice advising people not to get in the water at Ballyloughane beach after elevated bacteria levels were detected in the water.

This came after a period of heavy rain, which can lead to contaminated water run off.

Further water samples were taken on Wednesday, August 11, the results of which have come back today.

The City Council said that they meet the standards of excellent water quality.

The do not swim notice has been lifted at the beach as of this afternoon.
